Windows 7: Save SSD file to HDD needs permissions

Save SSD file to HDD needs permissions

Today I am trying to set up my boot SSD to save an encoded video file to the E: drive on system which is
a 1 TB hard disk.


That was a boot drive from which I cloned the SSD and things are running including saving across my small homenet.


I don't know how to change my admin privileges for this or know how to look it up unless it is in

folder options.


The screen shot should be attached

The problem is the sid will be different on the old drive hence you wont have rights. Simple way is to create a new folder so you are the owner or take ownership of the folder with our tool Add Take Ownership to Context Menu in Windows 10 | Tutorials. The program files is protected as well so not the best place to save

samuria Thanks for the tip.


That SSD just seems to run slow and not give any advantage, save maybe boot up.
My test is using Handbrake with the object file also on the SSD which is pretty much bare of content.



Perhaps a scratch install of Win7 and use AOMEI to do a secure erase on the SSD?

I'm still on this since one of these installs to SSD showed a corrupted data error.
First step I have done is do an HDD Low Level format. This looks real simialr to
the routine in AOMEI but I use HDD Guru Low Level tool.



I got out the guide for SSD from Win7 forums I had printed out quite a while ago.


Also in hand I have the Adata Tool kit.


Is there some necessary formatting trick like "clean all" from the Win7 guide or some such before I use the
standard Win7 Admin tools to put on NTFS?


I believe the Adata tools load as .exe after all the rest of this is done and Win7 is reinstalled. I'm reviwitng theAdata readme info

I may have missed something but I did not see the same selection in Windows 7.
Perhaps you can give me a path to it?

I'll review it then and try to see what I missed.


In prepping this SSD over again so far I have used the Low level format mentioned.
Then, I used the Win7 repar disk in Command Mand option to run the diskpart and clean
commands. That seemed to work well.


But I'm going to run the Simple NTFS routine from Admin tools in ny hard drive. Is there any
difference in that? I mean from all the diskpart commands run in the command line?


Also I can never seem to follow how to make a Rufus bootable Win7 install iso. Is there anything new on that?

I did reread the Take ownership message. At the !0 forums take ownership link
it says it only works for win10.


Plus I'd rather avoid registry programs. Once I get through this clean install, I'll see if the
problem had persisted. Sometime if I have a scratch disk, I'd try the downloadable reg tweak and see if

it's good for Windows 7.


onward. ;-)
